Here we get potatoes, bread and lots of roasts meats served with or without vegetables. There's also some smoked fish. Since I live in the city I'm able to get some Caribbean stuff like hot peppers, cornmeal, plantains, and even green bananas if I wish. I also get lots of spices so I make my own curries. They do have some pasta here but I'd get fed up if I ate that every day. I prefer to change it up, potatoes one day, rice the next, then just vegetable mix, beans, soups, cornmeal, cous cous and bread. I'll have meat (chicken/turkey/lamb occasionally pork) up to 3 times a week, fish once a week and salads throughout.

Well in Louisiana you have Gumbo, Jambalaya, Pastalaya (It's Jambalaya except instead of rice you use pasta MIND=BLOWN), Crawfish (Which we supply 95% of in the U.S.) you also have your stews, Étouffée's, and bisques. Other foods popular in Louisiana are Muffuletta, Po'boy, and Red Beans and Rice (which you have to eat on Monday). Seafood is especially popular in Louisiana either as an ingredient or as a main dish such as Shrimp, Crabs, Oysters and Catfish. Swamp denizens such as Gator or Alligator, Frog Legs, and Turtle soup is popular around the bayous of south Louisiana. My favorite dish is my mothers crawfish stew that she makes a huge pot of maybe once or twice a year, she would make it more often but buying frozen crawfish when it's not crawfish season is expensive, one pound of frozen crawfish could cost $20 and she usually needs five pounds.

I'm from Eastern Europe myself, and moved to Australia when I was younger. We tend to eat a lot of breads, salads, cabbage (pickled), egg drop soup, pita, burek (and various pastry goods - sweet and savoury), stuffed vegetables (like stuffing capsicum with mince and rice), meats etc - typically very hearty and full meals.

I hadn't been back for 11 years until the end of last year and we drank šljivovica (plum brandy) almost every other night at our family dinners. It was lovely and definitely a drink I recommend.

Right now we've adjusted more to Australia's multiculturalism so I will often try out Indian recipes, Chinese recipes and cook more typical Australian meals. A lot of cuisine from my home country does take extra time and effort to make, especially if you pickle your own vegetables like my mum and her family used to. I personally really miss the taste of home but, at the same time, my body is now used to Australian food.

Salmon and trout are pretty big up here in Washington state. We also eat a lot of potatoes in the North West.

I have never eaten turtle soup in my life... Surprisingly enough, despite being from Louisiana, I don't eat seafood often.

Rice and chicken. A lot. And Ghanaian food, like kenkey (but I'm picky so I don't really eat my parent's culture's food).

Italian and Mexican cuisine.

I may try Asian or Koran cuisine if I find a restaurant that is not overly expensive
